He also said it is a must to wear the mask and maintain social distancing in public places, Marriage functions, Death ceremonies, Religious activities, and cultural meets.
Corona is a virus that doesn't know the difference, so it is necessary to maintain distance and to wear a mask during the campaign, says Radha Krishnan. He requested the public to wash hands regularly, sanitize the hands, and wear masks by maintaining social distance.
In India per day, 1000 positive cases are found in 19 states, and Tamil Nadu is one among those states. This year March is turning out like 2020 March with the gradual increase of COVID 19.
